Homes are rich with information about people's energy consumption, medical health, and personal or family functions. In this paper, we present our experiences deploying large-scale residential sensing systems in over 20 homes. Deploying small-scale systems in homes can be deceptively easy, but in our deployments we encountered a phase transition in which deployment effort increases dramatically as residential deployments scale up in terms of 1) the number of nodes, 2) the length of time, and 3… CONTINUE READING
